williams, the widow of medgar evers became the first woman to deliver the inaugural prayer. poet richard blanco is the first latino to recite the inaugural poem, as well as the first openly gay american to perform the honor. supreme court justice sonia sotomayor became the first hispanic american to administer the oath of office when she swore in vice president joe biden. president obama spoke with these historical moments in mind during his speech. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> in many ways, this speech was progressives. this is what we have been waiting for to hear for four years. the president is older now, and certainly wiser to the position about how washington works. but at least for today he will not let trivial politics derail the progressive course that this country is on. president obama looked out to the crowd on the national mall today and saw the fu

learned that poet richard blanco wrote three poems in preparation for yesterday, and the one they chose wasn't his favorite, initially. but that is the one he liked ultimately. >> mike? >> dubliner makes the best irish coffee in town! >> and i found more "morning joe" friends. you're the best! thank you so much. and maybe next remote, we might even get a republican here. thanks so much for watching. if it's way too early? >> it's "morning joe," but now it's full-time for chris cillizza. the fix is in. have a great, day, everyone! >> thanks again! have a great day! >>> four more years! president obama kicks off his second term with a rallying cry for where he wants the country to go. some say calling it progressive is an understatement. but can the president get bills on climate change and immigration through the republican-controlled house? meanwhile, in the middle east, israelis go to the polls and prime minister benjamin netanyahu is expected to keep his job. but what course does he want to take and what does that mean for the u.s. relationship with israel? >>> and today marks the 40t

, of course, we had that poem from richard blanco where he talked about the 20 empty desks which is very moving, but here we are and today we have another shooting. >> right. >> on a campus. your reaction to that? >> we have a state of texas which is actually in the middle ground when it comes to gun deaths and gun violence but which has a higher than average rate of gun ownership. now, in the nra's math, that should mean that these things should never happen because there are more guns in texas. you shouldn't have incidents like that. there are lots and lots of guns there. here you had from what we're understanding, more than one person with a gun. to their calculus that should mean no shootings should happen. people being shot in the cross fire of gun violence is something so common on the streets of so many cities that it's clear that we have to address it. we simply have to. >> it's a public health problem. >> exactly. >> sorry, david, very quickly. >> i was just going to say in texas they are pushing a law that would allow concealed carry on college campuses. obviously not a good id

inaugural ceremonies for over 200 years. the invocation -- the poem benediction from richard blanco. poem from richard blanco and benediction from reverend dr. luis leon. the church of the president, st. john's, and the second inaugural address. >> trying to find a balance between a government ruled by elite and ruled by a mob. both being a problem. he talked about the government we want, which is infrastructure, regulation, all the good things, and then recognized the government can't solve all the problems. i thought that was a reaching out, if you will, a shout at the tea party right that's rejectionist. then far more interesting, seemed to be a call out to tehran. he said our old enemies become our new friends. we're going to try to do that again. learn from the lessons in the past as we've done with vietnam and the germans and japanese and all the people we've gone to woor with and it's an amazing idea to throw that idea in the face of the neo cons. they hated what we heard him say. i spent some time with an iranian family this past weekend. they said go over to talk to the people. h

? >> richard blanco is the poet. the search for unified national identity. it's interesting a young, cuban american is going to say who we are and where we are going. in the words of his poem, let nut thag happened here be forgotten by us. >> richard also an engineer. >> yep. >> you should know more about the $8 billion bank settlement. i did a series of round tables in ohio this week, talked to a lot of people who wrongfully have been foreclosed on. there's thought the $8 billion fees the banks are paying could be deductible against their federal taxes as were the dollars bp paid for the clean up. it's something congress needs to stop if it comes to that. at the same time, the largest six banks and the power they have, we need to break up the banks. >> i agree. congresswoman? >> you should know in 2005, i pulled together several members in congress to form a caucus. we realize the economic policies and foreign policies of the bush administration would lead to a spike in poverty. unfortunately, now 50 million people are living in poverty. 16 million are children. we passed a bipartisan res
